Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble is a Japanese beat 'em up for PSP which puts you in the role of a high school student on a class trip to a historic Japanese city, includes no shortage of fist-to-face and knee-to-gut action, and all in the name of pride and bragging rights.
Atlus have slashed the prices of several games on the PS Store. Users can pick up great games such as the Persona trilogy for discount prices.
Gaming Nexus writes: "Once upon a time there was a game called River City Ransom. On the surface this Technos game looked like any other 8-bit brawler, however it didn't take long to discover that this action game was incredibly ambitious. Instead of making you fight through levels that are straight out of a big budget action movie, this game took place around your home town. You were a bunch of teenagers exploring a series of inter-connecting areas, fighting gang members and saving the day."
GIN writes: "The beat-'em up (or "brawler") genre was one of the mainstays of the arcade and early consoles back in the late '80s and early '90s. The genre is rather basic. You controlled a character moving from one side of the screen to the other as you beat your opponents senseless. It was fun for awhile, but I found it to be repetitive. You always go the exact same way, fighting the same opponents with different colorings and pretty much using the same tactics. And do you want a story to go with it? Forget it, because it isn't and wasn't going to happen or magically appear. Atlus and its crew recently decided to show the world that beating the living daylights out of people is not dead. Welcome to the fictional world of Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble. And it's a pretty darn good game."
